Sure, 2018 might be the year you spend less on clothes and beauty products. But that’s probably not realistic. When you look good, you feel good, right? You can also flip around that saying: When you feel good, you look good. Here are five easy, healthy New Year’s Resolutions that you will want to keep doing because they make you feel great!
Resolution #1: Start using the three-bite rule.
Just because you’re watching your weight, doesn’t mean you have to say “no” to delicious foods. Depriving yourself is so old-school. Order what you want but take just three bites. After that, your taste buds start getting a little bored and may not detect the flavors as keenly. Unless the dish is incredible, eating more than three bites won’t be worth the extra calories.
Resolution #2: Use Regular Girl daily to take care of your digestive health.
Having to squeeze and shimmy into your favorite jeans because you’re feeling bloated isn’t very attractive. Neither is the stress of running late because you’re spending extra time in the bathroom. Adding a daily serving of Regular Girl to your morning smoothie or sprinkling it onto your cereal will help you stay regular.
Resolution #3: Exercise your sense of humor, and exercise it often.
We’re not talking about rubber chickens and whoopie cushions. Life is filled with absurdities if you just watch for them. Laughter reduces stress and helps you relax. It also helps to stimulate both productivity and creativity. You’ll be even more fun to be around.
Resolution #4: Leave the extra air outside of your body.
Always chew with your mouth closed. This isn’t just good manners. Bloating can be caused by gas in the abdomen from breathing in too much air while eating and/or drinking. Be mindful of chewing and swallowing. Put down your fork between bites. Don’t use a straw. And cut back on carbonated beverages, chewing gum and sucking on hard candy.
Resolution #5: Do something you love as often as possible.
Spending time doing something you enjoy helps to re-fuel your spirit and keep you refreshed. Make this a priority.
